Unifying Theme – Earth has evolved over geologic time due to natural processes. Almost a hundred years ago German meteorologist Alfred Wegener proposed continental drift, based on matching coastlines and corresponding rock and fossil formations. Today we understand the seven continents once formed a megacontinent which has split apart over millions of years as a result of plate tectonics.

KEY STANDARD:

Key Standard SC.7.E.6.5 Explore the scientific theory of plate tectonics by describing how the movement of Earth's crustal plates causes both slow and rapid changes in Earth's surface, including volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and mountain building. (Cognitive Complexity/Depth of Knowledge Rating: Moderate)

SUPPORT STANDARD:

Support Standards SC.7.E.6.4 Explain and give examples of how physical evidence supports scientific theories that Earth has evolved over geologic time due to natural processes. (Cognitive Complexity/Depth of Knowledge Rating: High)

 

SC.7.E.6.2 Identify the patterns within the rock cycle and relate them to surface events (weathering and erosion) and sub-surface events (plate tectonics and mountain building). (Cognitive Complexity/Depth of Knowledge Rating: High)
